Visit the “Big Island” of Hawaii! The Big Island is twice as large as all the other islands and continues to grow today.  The most diverse of all of the Hawaiian Islands, climate zones range from snow capped alpine (Mauna Kea at 14,000 ft.), to lava desert, to rainforest.

The only active volcano, Kilauea, is located here. The resort areas include dry and sunny Kailua-Kona and Kohala coast area on the west side, and the lush tropical Hilo area on the east side of the island. Volcano National Park is located on the Hilo side.
